CARRETERA 134 MEXICO.

ALTAMIRANO TO IXTAPA

In early March of `07, my friend Paul Simon, and I, drove Taxco to Zihuatanejo.

From Iguala we drove straight North to Hwy 134, then West to Carretera 200.

This last section of our circular trip had the worst sections of road, but they were still pretty good.

A lot of the last stretch was under construction with rock scaling and repaving taking place.

All in all we found the highways in excellent condition and all of the corners were better engineered than those in British Columbia.
